My (somebody’s) High School Art Project

This ceramic kitty has been in my Mom’s house since I gave it to her when I was in High School.

Mom rotated through objets d’art, and for some reason not readily apparent to me she had it in her basement on a shelf for the last 2 or 3 decades.

I brought it to Colorado to put in my own home when I realized that my entire adult life I’d been living under an assumed identity as an artist.

My friend Dennis Brooks graduated a year after me, in ’74.  Mom always thought I did it, and now I wonder how many years I thought that too.

    Love the mistaken identity business of the artist. Especially because the cat was done so neatly. Well, your talents just lay in different areas. However you’re daddy to the kitty now so take good care of her as if she were your own. Such a nice white glossy finish.

    It’s a treasure, and someday an heirloom. I wonder how far-fetched the story will get once my grandchildren pass it on.
